Where does one start with this hotel? From the moment you arrive your breath is taken away by the beautiful views.You really have to see it to appreciate the stunning scenery. Then you enter the hotel and are treated to a first class service by reception. Our room was an upgrade and was very spacious and spotlessly clean. The atmosphere...

First time I have ever visited this amazing hotel and I can't wait to return! The reception area is a great indicator of what lies ahead - the beach, stones, rope, hand made seaweed soap are just some of the touches to make you feel at one with the ocean in the pure luxury of the bedroom, with its beautiful...

My boyfriend and I spent last weekend in Spanish point, where the weather was far from idyllic.However our saving grace for the trip was our visit to the Ocean Bar in the Armada Hotel for dinner and cocktails on Saturday Night. I have to say it was absolutely fantastic.Especially the service. Glenn looked after us for the evening and was...

We stayed at one of the Hotel's adjacent holiday cottages, which overlooked the bay and the beach. The views were spectacular, and the hotel staff and setting are second to none. The friendliness of all in the village and beyond was a real credit to West Clare, from the surf instructor to the staff in the kids club at the...

Nice hotel. Clean and modern, but unable to cope with the masses. Due to its isolated location in a very popular scenic spot, it isn't big enough to cater for coach parties, regulars and those choosing to just drop in. We were on an organised 4 night coach trip,while the rooms were lovely, spacious and spotlessly clean, the food and...

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Armada. The staff were friendly and helpful, the hotel reception is adorned with the ships of the Armada and the walls tell the story of its demise. The food was great, we eat at the bar which has a great menu and atmosphere. I had the burger and I have to say it's the...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Welcome to the Armada Hotel where you will enjoy the sights, sounds and tastes of West Clare on the edge of the Atlantic ocean. You will be spoiled for choice with our dining options where the emphasis is on using wild, seasonal and local produce in the Pearl Restaurant, Ocean Bar and the traditional Johnny Burke's Bar. The Ocean Bar is the perfect retreat for a leisurely coffee or carvery lunch with bar food served 7 days a week. Johnny Burke's bar is a great place to meet the locals and enjoy an Irish Craft beer pared with some good wholesome food and you never know who might drop in for a live traditional music session ! And of course, West Clare is all about getting out and about and within a short driving distance you can find the iconic Cliffs of Moher, Aran Islands, the Burren and lovely coastal drives. The Armada is a great base for those who like an activity based holiday with surfing, kayaking, cycling and walking all available locally and the world renowned Lahinch and Doonbeg Golf courses are close by too. ... more   less
